That time has glowing sandaled feet.

Only beneath youth's lashes.

secluded part of tJo garden, and the

fatal, for a little bantam hen, yearn

The Capital of Colombia.
Bogota., Iho capital of Colombia, is
suuaieu in the "heart of the Andes,"
something over 8,000 feet above the
sea level, and ranks as the third hiirh
esi uity on the western hemisphere, Po
tosi and Quito only taking precedence.
There is a peculiar tradition as to the
event of its founding, in 1542. It is
related that three Spaniards set out
wttii mo purpose of selecting a capital
for the new vice royalty of New Gre

through enczuehv. a second ascended
the i.lagdalena, while the third's gate

true Spanish superstition lhey hailed
ii as an omen, and with great for
mality founded the present citv under
the name of "Santo Fe de Pogota."
Later the "Santa Fe" was dronned
and it remains simply Bogota. Its pop

Vv'e all know that there is a lan
guage of nature. Every sentimental
girl (without being a botanist) 13 ac
quainted with the language of flowers.
But it has remained for a recent
writer to indicate the language of
umbrellas: "To place your umbrella
in a rack indicates that it is about to
change owners; an umbrella carried
over a woman, the man getting noth
ing but the drippings of the rain,
signifies courtship; when the" man has.
(he umbrella nd: the woman the drip
pings, it indicates marriage ; to carry
it at an angle under the arm signifies
that an eye is to be lost by the man
who follows you ; to put a cotton um
brella by the side of a silk one means
'exchango is no robbery ;' to lend an
umbrella may be interpreted, 'I am a
fool;' to carry an umbrella just high
enough to tear out men's eyes and
knock off men's hats signifies, "I am a
Woman. " SL Louis Republic.

Miss Fanny Davenport went into
one of the large dry goods establish
ments recently to look at the um
brellas. While examining the assort
ment the clerk, who had been eyeing
her with some curiosity, remarked:
"I think one of the new 'Tosca'
parasols would suit vou, ma'am."
"Why ?" asked the" actress.
"Well, 1 hardly know, but I think
you look very much like Miss Fanny
Davenport, and I think a 'Tosca' para
sol would be becoming."
The compliment so pleased Miss
Davenport that she made a purchase.
